Myopia linked to age related cataract
Myopia linked to age related cataract (August 16, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Singapore - Myopia may be a risk factor for cataract, according to a report published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis of 12 studies, comprised of over 38,000 individuals between the ages of 30-97. Results showed that in 8 of the studies, myopia was associated with prevalent nuclear and posterior subcapsular cataract--but not cortical cataract. The remaining 4 studies found non-significant associations of myopia with age-related cataract.
